Sorry for the long pause!

Found out some exciting news last week...after Ben returns from Korea in Jan of 2014, we will be heading to Germany!  Yes, we are finally getting out of this dirty small town...hopefully for good!  I've been getting together all the places I want to go when we get there.  I minored in History in college, and I'm finally going to be able to go and visit all the places I've read and studied about.  I'm so so so excited.  I've started a board on pinterest of all the places, so if you follow me there, you can see where all I will be wanting to travel!

Ben took us to Santa Fe for a short getaway last week. We needed to get out of town for a bit.  It was so nice to just go out and have fun with my little family.  I'm so happy, I could just burst.

I got an idea yesterday while at Walmart.  Since they can't ever keep their shelves stocked, I decided to start taking pictures of the empty shelves so I could send them in to the corporate office.  The managers at this store ignore the complaints and requests to keep normal products like dog food in stock, so maybe with proof, corporate will do something about it.  Here are a couple I took yesterday.

Here are some I took today:

So I posted it to one of the groups I'm in on facebook and got a lot of support...except from one person.  This person has been known to make a few tirades on the group and making a mountain out of a mole hill.  Well, I was basically told that I just shouldn't shop at Walmart and that I could just get everything I need by making 3 stops at 3 different stores.  While I would LOVE to do that, I have a baby, one car, and a husband that works a 2-2-2 schedule.  It is not easy to get out to the store, and I'm usually by 3 stops at 3 stores for supplies isn't easy.  She then told me that she is the busiest person that she knows, so my statements were null in void.  Ok.  So I just simply deleted the post and redid it so I wouldn't have to continue with her asinine replies.  
From what I've seen on that particular group, about 70% of people are on there to either gossip or blow things out of proportion.  I wish it was a more helpful group.  When I post, I'm either sharing information about town or Key Spouse events or giving recommendations on various places in town...all positive!  


Ben and I ordered running shoes yesterday. It's time that I start exercising.  I haven't worked out since I was about 3 months pregnant.  I'm not unhappy with how I look, because I am back to about a pound below my pre pregnancy weight, but I'm ready to start getting healthier.  I eat healthy, I might as well exercise too!  My shoes are teal and white and are ADORABLE.  Ben helped me pick out ones that would be good for running...because I know nothing about it!

I ordered Delilah a winter hat from my amazing friend at KeiMei Knits.  
Here are some pics of her wearing it:

I can't help but say that she is the prettiest baby that ever was.

Fun party last night!

Ben and Miranda had their reenlistment party last night here, and it was great fun.  Had a keg and some great friends over. 
It was a successful night.  Ben ordered 8 different pizzas for everyone and we all just hung out in my garage. Hardly any clean up this morning!

Miranda and I went on a bike ride around the block, almost did something hilarious (but slightly mean), and she crashed twice.  (Ben's bike is for someone SUPER tall.)
All in all, a great night.  Good times over labor day weekend. 

Aside from the party, we've had a fantastic weekend.  We've shopped, spent time together, and hung out with friends.  



Found out an interesting tidbit of information as well.  

A week or so ago, a person that I met about 4 or 5 years ago was brought up in a conversation.  I didn't remember who this person was initially, but eventually remembered.  The same night I met her, some nasty things were said about a very nice person who was at the same get together. I don't know who said the nasty things (what I heard was hearsay), but it was blamed on me by a friend's ex-wife.  Later on, the ex-wife apologized to me for saying that I said nasty things about the nice person.  

Fast forward to present day.

A person that I no longer associate myself with was talking to the initially forgotten person and the rumor was spread that I made a fake facebook page with the ex-wife in order to be mean and harass the initially forgotten person. 


After over half a year of purposefully not spending time with this group of people because of the gossiping, and I'm still getting talked about.   I really just have to laugh about it, because what else can I do?  No matter what, they are going to talk about me, and I'm going to keep living my happy life.

Not too long ago, I went through my closet and donated a bunch of my old clothes.  


Ben and I went shopping yesterday and I got a bunch of new clothes for myself and Lilah.  Got some pop color pants and some cute tops.  Ordered some nice camis and sweaters from American Eagle.  Still on the lookout for some more.  I've got a couple pairs of boots I'm ordering from Target as well.  I definitely needed some change to my clothes.  I was tired of all that I had, and I'm a bit thinner than I was before I had Delilah.  

I've ordered some new cricut cartridges and some toys for Delilah as well.  It's been really fun shopping and being able to get things that we've been wanting.  

Ben also got me a new laptop! (Mine bit the dust about 4 months ago...)

Life is good.  Family is good.  Friends are good.  I'm a happy girl, and I hope everyone knows it!

In other news, my brother just went to BMT this week.  Hopefully, we will be able to see him when he is graduating.  His wife will be there, and Ben is planning on helping his parents go out there as well.
